Saint Mail collection

My kids and I burst open the new SAINT MAIL  package for January! We love this program and the way it highlights a different saint each month, with all the materials for a special craft! This awesome program makes it SO EASY to celebrate the Liturgical Calendar! We’re studying St Sebastian this month and we made awesome little bow and arrow sets, thanks to the package provided! There is a wonderful little biography of St Sebastian, along with a holy medal (for our growing collection) and a dog tag.  All of the contents of each snail mail package (who doesn’t love mail!?!) fit nicely in the mail bag provided in the intro Saint Mail package we received in December.

I’m sure someone would be disappointed if I didn’t mention our newest

Egg Carton buddy.

I created this little Egg Carton Arma Dei Knight…to explain the name of our company Arma Dei, dedicated to the awesome Scriptural passage

Ephesians 6:13-17.

Put on the Armor of God!
